9.A.6. Gorgon

As a young child I was fascinated with Greek mythology. I read books, watched TV & movies about Greek gods like Zeus, Hermes, the messenger god (one of my favorite movie is “Jason and the Golden Fleece”, where Jason is a grand-son of Hermes), Hera, Athena, etc. and other related creatures like Medusa (in fact, this is Gianni Versace’s fashion symbol), the satyr (you know, from “Percy Jackson and the Olympian” movie series), the Centaur (seen in “The Chronicles of Narnia” movie series) and the “Demogorgon” (you know, from the Netflix show, Stranger Things) and so, so, much more. Therefore, Greek mythology narrative is still alive in this generation.

This photo is a shield bronze ornament depicting a gorgon, the dreadful female creature, with three revolving wings whose purpose is to frighten people.

My photo.

P.S. Just remembered the faun creature in the movie “Pan’s Labyrinth” directed by Guillermo del Torro. Okay, I do enjoy this genre.
